    My last tank, I successfully housed a yellow tang with a sailing tang. I put them both in at the same time, and didn't really have any trouble with them getting along. After a short break in the hobby, I'm now back in and have a question. Has anyone successfully housed a yellow tang with a desjardini tang? I've got a 120 gal they will be in.
    Thanks

    I actually housed both of those in a 75 gal before upgrading to a 120 (with a Kole). Some minor skirmishes from time to time, but nothing serious.

    Disclaimer: The tang police want you to know that technically, a Desjardini (or even regular Sailfin) should be housed in a 6' 180 gal.

    I have had the 2 housed in a 120g together as well without issue.
